Your Right to Compensation in New York

Compensation varies based on injury severity, recovery time, and other factors. We aim to recover both economic (medical bills, lost wages) and non-economic damages (pain and suffering, emotional distress) for you.

Understanding Fault

In New York, if you’re involved in an accident and found to share some of the blame, you can still pursue compensation. Thanks to the state’s “pure comparative negligence” rule, your responsibility for the incident doesn’t block your path to recovering damages. However, the amount you can recover will be adjusted based on how much the accident was your fault. For example, if you’re found to be 30% responsible for your injuries, your compensation would be reduced by 30%. This ensures that even if you played a part in the accident, you’re not entirely barred from receiving financial support for your injuries. It’s a fair system that weighs your contribution to the accident against the compensation you deserve.

Immediate Steps After a Slip and Fall Incident

  1. Seek Medical Attention: Prioritize your health to document injuries.
  2. Report the Incident: Notify the property owner or manager immediately.
  3. Gather Evidence: Take photos of the scene and collect witness information.
  4. Consult an Attorney: Contact us to ensure your rights are protected.
  5. Avoid Social Media: Do not discuss your incident or injuries online.
  6. Follow Medical Advice: Continue with your prescribed treatment plan.

Time Limits for Filing a Claim

You typically have three years from the injury date to file a lawsuit in New York. Prompt action is crucial to avoid missing your opportunity for compensation.
